Minot, N.D. — The 2024 campaign season is still a long way away.
Or is it? Republicans already have two candidates who are in the race officially, and more who are clearly interested in a run, though haven’t made it official yet.
National headlines have been dominated by familiar Republican names who are either already running for president, like Donald Trump and Nikki Haley, and who are expected to campaign, like Ron DeSantis and Mike Pence.
But what about North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum?
One of the hallmarks of an exploratory campaign for the presidency is a trip to Iowa, which for Republicans at least , is still the first state to vote in the national candidate selection process. And guess who has a trip to Iowa planned?
